Seems right up there with the other best-reviewed shows of '86 I've heard. For the uninitiated on '86 Dead, you wonder what the big deal is, but for what their goals were at this point in time, they nailed it.

Set 1 - not bad at all, with Jer leading the charge on Bucket and a clever placing of MNS *after* ol' dough knees. BIODTL has a 30-beat opening!

Set 2 - nothing terribly exciting until drums, when Hamza and the Nevilles come out to make this thing *fun*. It cooks zydeco-style and then, out of the blue, comes that Stella that trail_user below was raving about. Yeah, it really is a thing of beauty. It sounds like a months-polished studio rendering. Amazing, pin-drop perfection. This 2nd set really is worth hearing just for that Stella emerging, unfolding,a nd disappearing in a puff of smoke. But don't miss Jer's guitar solo on NFA, either!

Overall, yeah, it meets the '86 mark. If 12/15 was a jittery, emotional return for Jerry, this show leaves no doubt the Man was back. A good, solid sneak preview of those economically tight '87 nights.

This recording absolutely captures the essence of the Robert Hunter masterpiece Stella Blue. From Bobby's haunting feedback to Brent's perfectly mixed keys to Phil's luscious bass lines, this night killed it. One of the best Stella Blue they ever played. Jerry was in the song like unlike anytime in the past. Check it out. A+
